THE ODD COLOUR OF GLACIAL WATER

View from the helicopter of the streams created by the melting glacier, descending from Aoraki/Mount Cook the highest (3,754 m.) mountain of New Zealand down to lake Pukaki. The distinctive blue color tones of the water are created by glacial flour, the extremely finely ground rock particles from the glaciers. It is really a very impressive and spectacular geological phenomenon.
